Thread Name: Bob Dylan 50yr. hoax
Subject: RE: Bob Dylan 50yr. hoax
I'm generally unbamboozled by Dylan (Bob, that is) mainly because I tend to simply ignore him. He wrote a couple of interesting songs in the protest vein back in the Sixties, but there was a lot of that going on. It seemed to be the fashionable thing back then. I tended to like Tom Paxton's stuff, but then, so did a lot of people.

Frankly, I much prefer traditional songs, well performed, without trying to be cute about it, or adopting some phony persona.
